Dove, those primroses sound amazing! I've never heard of them having purple leaves. Would be great to see a photo. I also have the same sort of thought about colours fading, though I thought it was more an effect of the sun bleaching them lighter, like it does with coloured paper.
Landgirl, nutcutlet, that is a good thought, as there are the odd little leaf in between some of the flowers. There are still flowers of two different colours coming from close together in each plant though. The top right one has some other smaller yellow-orange buds coming out at the back behind the middle leaf under the red flowers, so I dunno. It's hard to tell when the plants are this size and jostling for space, whether it is one plant or more. The top left one's white flowers are almost certainly from the same plant as the purple flowers though, as they're all coming up through the middle.
Ah, plants, you do confuse me!
